Winemaker Notes

We selected our Arboleda 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon from the finest grapes of the exceptional Los Morros Estate in the Maipo Valley. This beautiful valley, located just south of Santiago and at the foot of the Andes, has been renowned for top-quality Cabernet for over one hundred years. Our Arboleda wines, and our new, state-of-the-art, gravity-flow winery and high-density vineyards in the Colchagua Valley, are symbols of our complete commitment to winemaking in Chile. Our premiere release of Arboleda Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the long, cool growing season of the 1998 vintage with elegance and complexity. The wine is intensely red with purplish rims; its aroma is both balanced and complex. Exquisite aromas of blackberry, black currant and rosehip jam display in perfect balance with complex nuances of chocolate and leather. On the palate, the wine displays fruitiness and a solid structure, the supple and round tannins being typical for a cool vintage. The long lasting blackberry jam gives way to lingering elegant dried fruit and tobacco flavors.

Arboleda  Winery Image

Arboleda wines were born in 1999 as part of the shared dream that inspired Robert Mondavi and Eduardo Chadwick to realize the potential of Chile as a world class producer of fine wines. The name "Arboleda" in Spanish means "grove of trees" and is a tribute to the native Chilean trees that have been preserved within the vineyards that produce the Arboleda grapes. The source of the Arboleda grapes comes from two self contained estates within the valley. A stunning hillside property some 40kms inland was acquired and planted in 2000 with a selection of red grape varieties. This property was named "Las Vertientes" due to its natural springs of water. Arboleda red wines aim for complete ripeness, full bodied with high concentration of fruit, complexity and balance.

Arboleda white wines aim to be fresh, crispy with high acidity and intense aromatics. Therefore the vineyards were planted during 2005 in the proximity to the sea, only 14 kms from the Pacific Ocean in a property called "Chilhue", the place of sea gulls in native Mapuche indian language.
